The hotel is a lovely old house in a beautiful setting with stunning views and a lovely garden with a huge redwood tree. Although outside of Keswick centre it is only a 15 minute walk to the town, lake and all the attractions. The room was large clean and comfortable. Free parking on site is useful. A good location for... More

We received a very warm welcome from Julie. The hotel is a beautiful converted house. We stayed in the 'School room' which was furnished in keeping with the age of the house, It had a lovely bay window with a view of the lovely garden. The room was very comfortable, clean and spacious with two comfortable chairs. The bathroom was... More

Our first visit to this hotel, what a revelation, a beautiful classic 19th century house converted into a hotel, with historic connotations, John Ruskin, a friend of the Andersons the owners was a visitor. Now a family run hotel with stunning views of Skiddaw and very friendly owners and staff. Set in its own beautiful gardens with a Giant Redwood,... More

We loved it here.. The view from the room and bathroom were fantastic.. The breakfast was excellent.. The owner were friendly, welcoming and helpful.. The room was lovely too.. It was nice to be so close to the town centre but feel you were in the middle of no where.. We would go back..

After a long absence, Easter weekend at the Lairbeck where quality of accommodation and welcome from Jennifer and Malcolm reminded us why we've been there regularly over the years!Excellent breakfast in house, and the super suppers at the Pheasant pub down the lane made this the perfect weekend!!

Stayed here for 2 nights at the weekend. (We love Keswick). A lovely house (history of it is worth checking out). Very comportable and clean. Nice pub a few minutes walk away serving very good food. (Maybe an idea to take a small torch if going to the pub at night, as the road is unlit and quite dark).

Thank you for your review. We need to make two responses for the benefit of potential guest. Lairbeck is classified as a Hotel by Visit Britain. We are not sure which road that you have in mind that is not lit but Vicargage Hill (our road) is very well lit in both directions with street lamps at 30 metre intervals.... More
